All set for Kakamega Homeboyz vs Tusker FC FKF cup match

The stage is set for an exhilarating clash as underdogs Kakamega Homeboyz and favorites Tusker FC face off in the highly anticipated FKF Cup final match at the Kasarani Stadium on Saturday, kick-off at 3 p.m.

The match promises to be a thrilling encounter between two top FKF  Premier League teams vying for the prestigious cup title and a chance to represent the country in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Kakamega Homeboyz, led by their determined head coach Patrick Odhiambo, has called on their fans to make the long journey to Nairobi and show their unwavering support. He says the presence of a vocal fanbase often provides an extra boost of motivation for the players.

"Our league is very competitive and if you have seen we have reached this point and defeated the teams that we faced, that shows we are a good side and we are ready," said an optimistic Odhiambo.

Reaching the finals of the FKF Cup is a remarkable achievement for Kakamega Homeboyz, as they managed to eliminate two formidable opponents on their path to the grand finale.

Overcoming the likes of Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards in previous rounds demonstrates the team's mettle and their ability to rise to the occasion when it matters most. The players hope to carry this momentum into the final, eager to secure silverware for their club.

“Some of our players have featured for the national team Harambee Stars in their recent matches, and a player like Moses Shummah scored on his debut. We hope he will bring that form to the final against Tusker who is a very experienced side,” he concluded.

On the other hand, Tusker FC will be aiming to bounce back after a disappointing end in the league title race where they were piped to the title by Gor Mahia last weekend.

Losing the league title can often serve as a catalyst for a team to regroup and come back stronger, and Tusker FC will be looking to channel their frustration into a positive performance in the FKF Cup final. They have a talented squad with experienced players who will be eager to prove themselves and end the season on a high note.

“We congratulate Gor Mahia, they are worthy winners of the league. But now we are focused on the cup final and we will give it our all. We are all disappointed to have lost the league title, so our chance for continental football is the cup, and we must grab that chance,” quipped coach Robert Matano.

The clash between Kakamega Homeboyz and Tusker FC is expected to be fiercely contested, with both teams possessing quality players and a strong desire to lift the cup. The players will leave no stone unturned in their quest for victory, showcasing their technical skills, tactical acumen, and determination on the pitch.

On the other hand, Ulinzi Stars will fight it out against AFC Leopards for the third place in the same venue in a match that is slated to kick off at 12 noon.
